Tuna, Cottage Cheese, and Avocado together is like a threesome meant to be together. It's low carb and very filling and also has quite a bit of protein for one serving. This might sound like a weird combo to some people, but it was so good I had to share it. I am a fellow Redditor and was looking on there for low carb meal ideas and found this.
Did you know that one pouch of tuna has 70 calories, 0 grams of trans fat, 0 grams of sugar, and about 17 grams of protein to make the whole entire pouch 0 Smart Points? That is incredible! If you're following WW this is also a low point meal idea and now with their newer program Personal Points Avocados are also zero.
With the cottage cheese and tuna combined the total grams of protein is about 30g. That's a lot of protein and this can be eaten any time of the day. When I'm low on my protein count I'll have something like this or a protein shake.
What Ingredients do I need for Tuna and Cottage Cheese Salad?
In this section, you can find substitutes or suggestions for certain check here
Tuna - any type of low sodium tuna packet or pouch that comes in 2.6 oz. Cans are also fine. There are different flavors of them available for variety. If you're not a fan of tuna try subbing salmon or chicken.
Cottage Cheese - By far the best cottage cheese in the Midwest is Cass Clay. The taste is better than other cottage cheese brands out there.
Avocados - These are good for added fat and fiber. Just one medium sized avocado can contain up to 5 grams of fiber.
Hot Sauce - or any other seasoning you like.

Randy Williams says
I have been doing this for years (since maybe 2009), but I use at least a half avocado, sometimes a whole one.
This is what I use and how I prepare.
1 four oz. can tuna with water, or veg oil depending on personal preference.
1 half to whole avocado.
2 Tsp low-fat cottage cheese.
Season with black pepper and hot sauce to personal preference.
Without pepper, or hot sauce is OK also, change it up here and there.
Add all ingredients except hot sauce to a medium sized bowl and mix.
After mixing with a spoon, top with hot sauce and enjoy.
That's a good idea! Even more protein. 🙂
I sprinkled it with a bit of hemp seed. This is a fantastic recipe I also found on Reddit.
